Ifdef, reviews, comprise directives) are handled as instructions whereas in "command parsing" mode. clean traces are missed. they aren't "executed" by way of a subshell. strains starting with a #, almost certainly with best areas (not tabs! ), are makefile reviews and are missed. Conditional processing directives, resembling ifdef and ifeq, are famous and processed in general inside command scripts. integrated make services terminate command parsing mode until preceded by way of a tab personality. this suggests they have to extend to legitimate shell instructions or to not anything. The features caution and eval extend to no characters. the truth that clean traces and make reviews are allowed in command scripts may be brilliant in the beginning. the next strains express the way it is conducted: long-command: @echo Line 2: A clean line follows @echo Line four: A shell remark follows # A shell remark (leading tab) @echo Line 6: A make remark follows # A make remark, initially of a line @echo Line eight: Indented make reviews stick to # A make remark, indented with best areas # one other make remark, indented with major areas @echo Line eleven: A conditional follows ifdef COMSPEC @echo working home windows endif @echo Line 15: A caution "command" follows $(warning A caution) @echo Line 17: An eval "command" follows $(eval $(shell echo Shell echo 1>&2)) discover that traces five and 10 seem exact, yet are rather diversified. Line five is a shell remark, indicated by means of a number one tab, whereas line 10 is a make remark indented 8 areas. evidently, we don't suggest formatting make reviews this fashion (unless you propose coming into an obfuscated makefile contest). As you will see within the following output, make reviews aren't performed and aren't echoed to the output even supposing they happen in the context of a command script: $make makefile:2: A caution Shell echo Line 2: A clean line follows Line four: A shell remark follows # A shell remark (leading tab) Line 6: A make remark follows Line eight: Indented make reviews keep on with Line eleven: A conditional follows operating home windows Line 15: A caution command follows Line 17: An eval command follows The output of the caution and eval services seems to be out of order, yet don't be concerned, it is not. (We'll speak about the order of evaluate later this bankruptcy in part five. five. ) the truth that command scripts can comprise any variety of clean strains and reviews could be a problematic resource of mistakes. think you unintentionally introduce a line with a number one tab. If a prior goal (with or with no instructions) exists and you have got in simple terms reviews or clean traces intervening, make will deal with your unintentional tabbed line as a command linked to the previous objective. As you might have noticeable, this is often completely felony and won't generate a caution or errors until a similar goal has a rule elsewhere within the makefile (or one in all its contain files). if you are fortunate, your makefile will comprise a nonblank, noncomment among your unintended tabbed line and the former command script.
